Texas – bat found downed at shopping center – photo available

May 22

A passer-by in Weatherford, Texas happened across an adult Eastern red bat grounded at a local shopping center. After reaching out to us and sending us a photo, we provided guidance on how to safely contain the bat and sent a transport volunteer right away. The bat was brought to us where he will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild.
